Add-ons

Do we need/want a list of add-ons here? Is it helpful for most Arch Linux users who probably already know about them and have their own ideas about the "best" or "essential" addons? I propose deleting the list and just simply pointing to Mozilla's list of popular add-ons which is probably more useful and at least better maintained. An exception to the general rule could be for add-ons that prove to be popular/useful at least in a Linux specific context. User Agent Switcher comes to mind because it might not make Mozilla's "popular" list but might still be popular for Linux OSes (There are some cases where using the Windows Firefox user agent string helps with poorly written sites.)

There certainly are enough "best add-ons for firefox" articles out there already. James Eder 15:12, 7 June 2011 (EDT)

Quoting myself from Talk:Lrzip: "This wiki is about Arch Linux, so articles should tell how their subjects are related with Arch: this includes how to install, how to configure, how to solve problems etc...". I endorse your remark, we shouldn't try to substitute and maintain alternate guides for external projects (see also the many discussions on avoiding duplication of efforts). -- Kynikos 05:33, 8 June 2011 (EDT)

Removed outdated recompilation instructions to enable branding

  1. Applied to Firefox 2.x
  2. There's a package in AUR that already accomplishes the same
  3. Very contrived and hard to follow
